On My Bookshelf

Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies by Jared Diamond

The Drunkard's Walk: How Randomness Rules Our Lives by Leonard Mlodinow

Refactoring: Improving The Design Of Existing Code by Martin Fowler


It is good to be writing again. Things changed again and now I am in Boston on a project.
My training in Bangalore was fantastic. Made the best of friends and went home (Lucknow, India) for a week after almost 2 years.

Came back and had Ruby training in ThoughtWorks Chicago office and then moved to Boston. The project, I am working on, is one of the best project I can work on in terms of the client. It is going to be a world changing event and it feels good to be a part of the history.

I have been involved in high performance database optimization that involved some very intricate MySQL optimization. Really enjoying the database stuff.
